The flooring is oak, and I believe it was simply sealed with poly to match the existing floors throughout the first floor.

Can you use 6 in travertine tiles with a mosaic glass border or is it better with 4 in tiles?

I think you could use 6 inch--though I'm guessing we're talking 6x6- yes? the height of band is really about your preference. you often see 2 rows of 3 inch subways tiles before a border-- and that's the same height from counter that your talking. Just note where the accent tiles will hit outlets or sills-- may make a difference to u. And be sure there's adequate space above border for your field tile...Good luck

We actually have decided to use one row of subway tiles then the accent tiles because of the outlets. I wanted to avoid the accent running right through the outlets as pictured above. Then there will be two rows of 6x6 tiles and they will be staggered like bricks on a house. Do you think a pencil border is necessary or can it be ommited? The height of the band will be 4 inches.

I like your advice regarding the placement of the liner tile and to consider outlets and sills. I'd like to place it about two thirds up the wall but my husband thinks it should go about five or six inches above counter because that is what we usually see. I like the more contemporary feel it gives when it's higher on the wall...still contemplating which way to go.

This is a cherry wood with a natural stain--though I don't have exact information handy.
